Lamar Educational Awards Foundation Grants More Than $200K to Educators

January 24, 2023Rosenberg, Texas – Last week, 80 Lamar CISD teachers and staff were surprised with $205,327 in classroom innovation grants by the district’s foundation, the Lamar Educational Awards Foundation (L.E.A.F.) during the “Grant Express.” 

Every year, L.E.A.F. hosts the Grant Express where a team comprised of district administrators, community partners, and L.E.A.F. Board Members load buses and travel throughout the district to surprise teachers in their classrooms with giant checks.  

This year, more than 300 different projects were submitted for consideration during the application process. The projects selected ranged from cultural immersion activities to science dissection stations. With the help of foundation partners and supporters, teachers will use these funds to transform learning for students. 

“Our teachers work hard and often spend their own money to provide enriching experiences for our students,” Executive Director of L.E.A.F. Kameela Lewis said. “It’s an amazing feeling to reward our teachers – they deserve it all and more." 

Sponsors and special guests of the 2023 L.E.A.F. Grant Express included representatives from Gulf Coast Educators Credit Union, Stantec, Rice & Gardner, Herff Jones, First Financial Group of America, Tarkett, and the George Foundation.
